Too Much Too Soon?
Hello all, I have been an avid reader of the forums, and enjoy and appreciate all of the info supplied here, but until now have not posted.
I have a Meyer Lemon that my wife got me a year ago, and has been doing fine in MG potting soil. Being in N.VT (Z3), I brought it in for the winter and noticed that it has been pretty moist for about a month or so. After soaking up everything about Gritty and 5-1-1, I had decided to repot into some gritty and get a good feeding/watering regimen going.
I left on a business trip and when I came back, I had a serious spider mite problem, and my tree had dropped about half of the leaves. I sprayed and wiped all of the leaves, branches, etc. and have been checking on it for the last couple of days. So far everything seems to be fine. My question is, am I still ok to repot into gritty, or will the repot in conjunction with the spider mites be too much stress for the tree? Should I wait a while? I def. do not want to lose it. Thanks.
